Hi guys  Smiley

I have an radiator stain that won't go away too.

The stain is small, about 4 inches, and I'm told it has to have been there for ages. The carpet appears bleached to look at it.

I think that central heating systems sometimes have chemicals added to the water to prevent corrosion in the pipes.

I told the client the stain cannot be removed, am I right.

Not only chemicals but metals also, copper and iron plus others.
If fresh maybe, but unlikely to get out completely, if old no chance, don't  think even solutions nick can solve this one.

I recently removed a radiator leak (but dark in colour)
with Prochem rust remover.

Hope this helps.

Otherwise a must in your colection of chemicals.
